I recently purchased and installed a Boston Acoustics A 225C Dual 5.25-Inch Woofer Two-Way Center Channel Speaker. I had my 50" plasma moved to mymaster bedroom, and since it is only a monitor, I needed a center channel. Ialready had a couple of Boston A40 speakers for the front, and I added a coupleof Polk Audio TL 1Satellite Speakers. I decided to add the BostonAcoustics A 225C Dual 5.25-Inch Woofer Two-Way Center Channel Speaker.
However, I find that the Boston Acoustics A225C just too much bass for dialogue, despite adjustments in the receiversettings. I have it connected to the receiver via Mediabridge ULTRA SeriesSpeaker Cable with Dual Gold Plated Banana Tips if that makes any difference.
Anyone with this speakers that has an opinionon its use for dialogue? Could any of the forums members recommend a bettermodel at relatively the same price ($250 and under)? I have an old BostonCenter Channel in my living room that is great; I believe it is an old modelcalled the 525, but not certain.
Also, the surround speakers are ok, but notgreat. Maybe nothing better at this price and size however. Recommendationsmost welcome.
Appreciate the input! I'm not too familiar withaudio. Still within the return period so advisement appreciated!
